EQC looking to cash settle remaining remedial work
The Press, NICK TRUEBRIDGE
The Earthquake Commission (EQC) wants Canterbury customers to accept cash settlements, leaving homeowners to fix shoddy repair work, Labour says.
A July presentation, released to Labour under the Official Information Act, shows EQC wants to resolve as much remedial work as possible by the end of 2016.
Its "preference", according to the presentation, was to do so by cash settlement. EQC would ensure the process was "as easy as possible".
